I am looking for the family of Mourning Adams, b 1807 in TN, d 20 Sep 1880 Newton Co, MO, married 1826 William Spencer Garner in TN. They left Hickman Co, TN in Dec 1844 & arrived in Newton Co, MO Jan 1845. They then lived in Howell Co, MO for a number of years before again moving & settling down in Newton County. She was the daughter of a Rev. William Adams, b 29 Jun 1780 TN, & his wife Nancy Standiford, b 4 Oct 1784 in TN. William Adams & Nancy Standiford were married 3 Mar 1803 in Shelby Co, KY. William Adams was supposedly the son of a Robert Adams. Looking for ancestors of William Adams, as well as descendants. I have many of Mourning Adams' descendants. She may have had brothers Labron, David & Jacob Adams, but not certain. There were several Adams families living in Newton County MO before Mourning & her husband William Garner moved there, I feel there is a connection but don't have it nailed down.
